Hello Guys,

Hunts have been limited here due to rain,work and grad kid's.

Here is the last few hunts. The one key dates back it is made by the independent key co. out of Mass. The button seems interesting as well ,not sure if it's a uniform button or a common blazer button.
The barber dime is 1912
War nickel is a 43 p
the buffalo is a 37
54 and 59 on the other 2
wheat's 20,30,40,50.

Thanks for looking and HH

Cool button DV! I like it. Barber dimes are not that easy to pull so it is nice when they come out of the hole.

Thanks for the comments guys!
The barber dime was found at a park that sits behind a East Lansing fire house and has been hunted to death. As a matter of fact 3 guys I know hunted it together last year and between the 3 of them only turned 1 wheat penny. Just goes to show nothing is hunted out,

Congrats on the Barber DV! I have found that very same button in the past and believe it is a civilian blazer or coat button. Keep it up DV, you are doing great this year.

Nice finds, Rick!
